Highly recommended

CJ was amazing. She helped us capture our wedding on a classic wet summer's day. She made everybody feel at ease and really made sure we got the unique happy photos we wanted. Thank you so much for your help and guidance.

Brilliant fun quirky Photographer

We are so pleased we found CJ to do our wedding photos - she is fun and quirky, organising everyone effortlessly for the 'posed' shots whilst also catching many lovely candid 'unposed' pics

Photo's by CJ review

We first spotted CJ at the Kent wedding fayre and I was immediately drawn to her stall! I just looked to Adam and said "she looks so cool, let's go see her!" We then went home, checked out her page and booked!!

We recently had our family photoshoot with CJ too and she put everyone at ease with her presence and her humour, she was also really good with the 4 little ones at being authoritative but fun!

CJ has kept us up to date and in touch before our big day and we are so excited to have her there with us! She is so fun, creative and extremely talented - I highly recommend her!

Fun photographer

I believe we were CJ's last wedding of 2023 and she did a fabulous job! The weather was great on the day so we had some lovely indoor and out-door photos without freezing our guests!
CJ has such a fun lovely personality and doesn't mind when you and the guests get silly, in fact it's encouraged! It made for some excellent photos. We didn't want too many posy photos and we have a near perfect mix - CJ's attention to detail is great and she made sure we were all on the same page with what we wanted and our time schedule. We only had CJ for a few hours but she got an amazing selection of photos in that time, she left a little early but refunded us for that time - which was so great of her. For anyone who is looking for a fun photographer - I can't recommend CJ enough

Amazing photos

We Met CJ at the bluewater wedding fayre back in 2021. Since then we have had the pleasure of having her as our photographer for our engagement shoot and wedding. CJ made us feel comfortable from the moment we met her, u till the moment she left our wedding (and correspondence after). We have had so many compliments on our wedding photos. If you want a relaxed, candid style but still want your 'classic' family and classic wedding photos CJ is your lady.

Fantastic Wedding Photographer!!

After seeing CJ at a small wedding fair we had her do some engagement photos, we absolutely loved them and booked up straight away for the full wedding package! Our wedding photos were just lovely, a perfect mix of traditional and fun! she was so helpful, calming and laid back on the day she made it great fun. We have since had her do a family shoot too after the birth of our first child! I will always use CJ for any professional pics I need. She鈥檚 great!

Such a Superstar 鉁笍

CJ was absolutely fantastic in every way for us. She navigated through the covid-19 lockdown with us; when everything was uncertain and unknown and was always considerate and patient through all of hurdles we had to overcome in the process of re-planning the wedding. She was very good at instructing guests on the day to be where they needed to be and had a fantastic knack of getting big natural smiles from even the most awkward guests. Our photographs came back very quickly and are absolutely fantastic! We cannot thank her enough for all of her patience and professionalism.
